I have coveted this dress from the Alaska Metro lucky chair for weeks. I stop by there almost every log in just to take a peak to see if I’m lucky. Finally the other day, IT WAS A G!
You never saw anyone flip on their group tag and sit down so fast in your life.
It didn’t disappoint when I got it on, with it’s whispy chiffon shoulders and gorgeous embroidered flower textures. I decided to take it on a nature walk and found a lovely little spot in the Destination Guide. It’s called Timberline Lodge and I recommend ambling through the woods to see what you can find.
Happy Sunday lovelies!

I could NOT resist on this, the anniversary of IOF’s 13th year, to wear this freebie outfit I got at Shop n Hop for Christmas.
I love the Shop n Hop events. I roll through them like a kid in a candy store. I love finding new stores and grabbing freebies to see what folks are giving out, and buying things that I don’t need just because I want them.
I used to have a friend in SL who said Need wasn’t a word we used.
You might think I’m insulting this outfit, but I’m not. It’s well made. It comes with several color options and frankly, it’s cute! I like it. I was tickled to find it in the box as a gift, and felt like today was just the perfect day to wear it.
I am also wearing a skin from YS & YS whom I haven’t worn in a while and I love it. It’s a wonderful free gift also from Shop n Hop.
I needed to run out to pick up a few things today and decided I’d stop at my favorite beauty supply shop. It might not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts, kid.
After I’d grabbed a few necessities I decided to find a lunch counter to grab a quick bite. Interestingly, a found a place that had a vending machine lunch and so I decided to give that a whirl. You KNOW how much I love to eat. Plus I love fun cafes, so this had everything I was looking for!
The portion sizes I got back in exchange for my vending machine ticket were CRAZY! Am I supposed to eat all of this? Well I’ll give it a whirl! A little of this, a little of that, what a perfect treat on my shopping trip.
Now what to do with the rest of my day?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my lovely Linden Home. The STILT homes are on the horizon, and once upon a time I HAD a stilt home (built by Funky Junk) and I truly LOVED it. I loved just being on the water, and it was a happy time.
But really, I’ve got a little corner of paradise. I live here in an awesome spot on THE ELMS and a place I call Elms Sea and really, my view is unparalleled and my neighbors are quiet (no satan alters at this spot) and so can I complain?
No. I can’t.
I chose the one story model as it’s the best vic for me and my overwhelming need to decorate. I can’t have a bunch of EMPTY ROOMS darnit. I need to fill every room and while I LOVE the big houses, I always desperately want to decorate and fill all the rooms and while my prim allotment is generous it’s not enough. I need more.
Plus I need knicknacks everywhere. So you see, a two story just wasn’t going to get it.
I’ve been here a while, long enough for it to start to feel like home. Can you be in love with your little home space? I kind of am.
Also things rings from Yummy. She truly makes the best rings on the grid. Are you wearing them? No? Why?
It’s a Wednesday my lovelies, I hope the week is treating you well. Until tomorrow…ciao.
I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.
How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.
Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.
I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.
So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.
I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.
Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.
I’m out for adventure today and decided that I wanted some sort of Safari adventure to happen. I found an interesting build which promised animals I could ride and lots of scenery but I got stuck in how cute the landing area was and took a bunch of photos there. There is something to be said for a nice vignette, isn’t there?
I have these new shoes from Ingenue – who is my go to for all shoes – and they are perfect for exploring on a hot day! They’re sneakers! They’re sandals! They’re comfy and perfect and exactly what I needed for wandering this safari landscape today.
I also decided that the time was RIGHT for me to check out Equal 10 and honestly, that event had some great things – not sure why I don’t frequent it more? Really cute things there were going on from folks I was NOT that familiar with. One brand I am very familiar with and a fan of was ChicChica who truly makes some of my favorite foodie things on the grid. It’s fun fun – all of her food is a pretty as it is delish.
She had this corn dog for sale and I tested the demo to check it out and of course – CUTE. I forgot I had it on when I ran off to take pics. So of course, I had a corndog on safari.
I mean it’s a demo corndog. But that doesn’t make it any less delicious. I’m going to have to go back and buy the set, I feel guilty being one of those bloggers who wears the demos only! We all know that’s not cool.
But, it was still delicious. Much love to Lilo for her long lasting foodie things.
As my good friend Rose mentioned – Magika is havinga 50% off sale and you need to go. All hair is rebated 50% back to you when you buy it. Her work is beautiful.

I am super intrigued by the Linden Trailers ever since I discovered they have a faux Air Stream model. I need one for a vacation home. I don’t want to live in one, I just want to visit. My friend Putrid was good enough to let me visit hers and now I’m verklempt because I want one.
They only offer them on a 514 and that’s crap for prims but still – it would be a PERFECT vacation house. Do you have a Linden house? Which one and do you like it?

On Friday night I had the distinct pleasure of taking my old friend Dancien around the grid on a tour of “the NEW SL”. Except, it’s not really NEW it’s just – “CHANGED AND UPGRADED FROM WHEN YOU LEFT SL”. I started him off with a quick run to Kittycats because even if he didn’t want their free kittycat – well I did. (He did).
If you haven’t heard, they have these kitties out, you get either a boy or a girl and they are free – one per resident. AND you don’t have to feed them. If you covet a sweet little friend for your Linden home or personal parcel, I recommend these lovelies.
Next we popped over to Dutchie so I could show him the awesome furniture including a dining set I covet that has really cool meal sequencing available. He covets the bar – so i’m going to look forward to popping over to his place and having drinks.
After that we went to 7 Emporium and picked up yard signs to offend our neighbors. HOA BE DAMNED!!
I’ve also been working on more house decorating and finally got progress on my office.
In her previous post Rose mentioned her new love of grabbing old and new things and putting them together. Honestly that’s become my jam. I love shopping and am not stopping, but there’s no reason why GREAT things from my inventory can’t come out for a spin now and then. I mean, Blueberry makes AMAZING jeans. Why wouldn’t I wear them just because they aren’t new?
i still like my Catwa head that was free. I have one quibble and that is that my ears go green on the regular. What is that about? It’s disconcerting but you still see me wearing it don’t you?
